About the Averechts

Clipper Averechts first touched water in the year 1892.
Like the majority of the ships that time, the Averechts was built to transport loads of cargo from one port to another.
An extensive renovation in 1995 turned her into one of the finest charter boats sailing the Wadden Sea and Lake IJssel, and gained her multiple stars in ranking.

Sailing with the two-masted clipper Averechts is an experience to forever remember.
A great sailing adventure awaits aboard this beautiful ship!
